With a re-election bid by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio looking increasingly likely, a new poll Friday shows he won’t have an easy path if he decides to seek a second term.
For more than a year, Rubio insisted he wouldn’t run for re-election. But many signs are pointing toward Rubio reversing himself with the June 24 deadline to qualify as a Senate candidate approaching.
Public Policy Polling, which does some of its work for Democratic-leaning clients, said Friday its latest survey shows Rubio is unpopular in Florida.
PPP said 30 percent of the state’s voters approve of his performance and 49 percent disapprove. He’s even less popular among independents: 26 percent positive and 55 percent unfavorable.
